“We had a fabulous time at Mt Knoll on Lake George”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

We stayed the week of August 13, 2011. What a great stay. Not much to dislike at Mt Knoll - great location on Lake George with countless activitiy opportunities at your fingertip on and off property. Mike the the caretaker couldn't have been friendlier - "pride in ownership" is evident in how he deals with the residents.

My family stayed the week after July 4th. We stayed in cabin 5 with a million dollar view of the lake. 2 bedroms and a small kitchen. Mike is an excellent host and makes sure that all are comfortable and no one interrupts the harmony. We have a 9yr old son and Mike was great at introducing our son and us to other long term returning guests. We loved the campfire - had smores. My husband & son caught a ton of fish from the cottages rowboat right in front of the hote. Mike's Dad helped show my husband how to filet since we NEVER catch fish.... We rented from Yankee marina a bowrider for some tubing and fishing. Fantastic vacation for the price. We also went horseback riding down the street. You can see the lake from the trails. Met a bunch of great folks from CT and some from New York Long Island. We all had a great time. Was wonderful. Thanks for the memories Mike & friends ~

The only negatives are:
* Poor WiFi service. Hubby couldn't log on to work computer. Guess this makes you have a REAL vacation from work :)

* No Verizon phone service within a mile up the street and down the street. Only got Verizon in the boat on the lake.

* The futons are too thin to be used as couches. Really uncomfortable.

The PROS :)
* You really catch fish!
* the row boat !
* campfires
* ping pong & shuffle board. Our son had a great time!
* Water and beach are immaculate! No dirty birds here :)
* Having a functioning kitchen.
* A host who really is committed to everyone's happiness!
* location is fantastic - not too far from the village.
*Close to horseback riding stables
* Close to marina to rent boats and jet skis

Mt. Knoll Cottages on the Lake was recommended to us by family who
vacationed there previously. We are so happy to have found this place!
There are 10 cabins total, all very close to, if not right on Lake George. The view was breathtaking.
Our cabin was cozy and clean, it was like a home away from home. All the cabins have a front porch and charcoal grill. Bath towels, pots, pans, drinking glasses, coffee maker and utensils are all provided.

The private beach area was fantastic, complete with kayaks, rowboats and life vests
for us to use. The swimming area is 3 feet deep, which was perfect for the children.
If you want to go further into the Lake, you can.
The private property was complete with a swing set area for the kids, ping pong table, shuffleboard and a volleyball net. Beach chairs line the beach area.

There is a fire pit as well where the families would gather around in the evenings and roast marshmallows and chat. It was a nice little community there and we met some great people.

The village of Lake George as well as Bolton Landing were both within ten minutes driving distance, so it was very convenient to get into town when we wanted to.
Yet we also got the experience of being in a quiet, quaint cabin in the woods.

The owner, Mike, was very accommodating to our needs and a great guy in general!
Our two children had a fantastic time. Mt. Knoll is a great place for families to spend quality time together.
We will definitely be back and recommend Mt. Knoll!
Of the places we've previously stayed, Mt. Knoll is the BEST by far.

My husband and I recently had the good fortune to secure a rental at Mt. Knoll Cottages. We had several questions prior to our visit and Michael, the owner, answered all of them quickly. We've stayed at other places on the lake and due to a cancellation we were able to stay here.This is by far the nicest place we've enjoyed. As others have said, the cottages are large, clean and in excellent condition. We truly enjoyed the porch each and every day even during a thunderstorm. Michael is on the property but not intrusive in any way. We found this to be comforting that he's so attentive to his guests. There is a firepit at night where guests gather around - we didn't partake of this but it looked like everyone really enjoyed it. The views are astounding - we hope to go back next year. Staying here is a sure bet - just don't take my week please!!!

Room Tip: We have some walking issues and found any of the cabins from 1 to 5 would be great for us - just say...

I have been staying at Mt.Knoll off and on for 30 years! One of my biggest thrills was the first year I stayed there with my wife and kids. This August will be our 10th year in a row as a family. Plus we go the same week every summer, so we get to see our "Lake George friends" each and every year as they all return the same week as well. They have become like extended family. Lake George is a very special place to begin with, but staying at Mt.Knoll just takes it to another level. Nothing beats a little beer or wine and cheese from Oscar's down at the Mt.Knoll beach after a long day in the water, followed by great bbq and a campfire on the patio to roast marshmellows. Hope to see you at Mt.Knoll soon!

Found Mt. Knoll Beach on the internet and booked due to the good reviews... very glad we did! Michael the property manager was very kind on the phone and very informative on the property and the Lake George area, he answered all the questions we had. We came in Sept. to see the fall foliage. Upon arrival he was just as nice in person and even gave us a personal tour of our cabin and the property as we never stayed there before. Our cabin was number 8, it was a log cabin with a lake view, a full kitchen, bathroom, living room area with fireplace and it had a screened in porch facing the lake, great for morning coffee! The cabin was clean and roomy for the 2 of us. It was a short walk to the lake where we enjoyed the adirondack chairs on the beach and had a patio with a fire pit for nightly fires. Michael was always around if we needed anything and the stay at Mt. Knoll Beach was fabulous... we will be back again!

My wife and I were looking for a place in Lake George to spend our vacation. We were looking on the internet and were lucky to find MT. Knoll Beach Cottages. This place is truly a gem. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The beachfront property was excellent. The sand and water are pristine. I have two young boys ages 5 and 2.5 and this place was great for them. Mike the caretaker was great to my children and was more than accommodating to my family. The property is clean , well maintained and was a very safe enviorment for my children. While there we looked at other places we saw on the internet and said to each other that we were very lucky to have stayed at Mt. Knoll. If you want a place that's safe, clean, friendly with a beautiful beach and view this is it.
